Mindful Monday: The mixed bag

Well, here we are again at the beginning of another beautiful and promising week! I have a full and demanding calendar and a commitment to take care of myself through all of it! Why is this week’s post a “mixed bag”? It’s because, in the spirit of “Mindful Monday’s” I will be sharing three things…

The Swearing Mom give away!

I have another cocktail shaker attachment to give away in celebration of #TGIF  Tell me how you plan to spend your Friday night. Hell, tell me about the whole damned weekend if you like! Be sure to share with your friends so we can hear everyone’s plans! TGIF, bitches!      

Today is brought to you by The Letter K!

I was at Michael’s Arts and Crafts and they had a bin of wooden letters on clearance. They were all mismatched and I couldn’t find a K for the life of me! I kept digging and settled on a J. I had gotten an idea shortly after seeing the clearance bin and was not going…

The Gilded Leaf

Who doesn’t love a little glitz? I mean, I personally love it! You can really glam it up with a touch of rich metallic paint in a multitude of ways! What better choice than the mother of all metallics… GOLD! Today I am going to share something so ridiculously simple, it’s almost embarrassing! So, simple…

Another Swearing Mom Givaway!

Today I am giving away this awesome mason jar accessory! I used one while making my Honey Lavender Lemontini and it works great! Effectively turning a regular mason jar into a functional cocktail shaker, it allows you to choose the size that you’d like to work with. Let’s face it, mason jars are pretty awesome!…

Gingeriffic Apple Juice!

Ok, so I’m totally knocking off the Whole Foods right now BUT, in true Swearing Mom fashion I am giving it my own bit of sass. This fantastic juice is an amazing jump start in the morning! It’s sweet and tangy and spicy! Everything in it has a specific health benefit which is why Whole…

The Quaffle. Or is it the Frittaffle?

As I mentioned, it’s time to get real up in here when it comes to getting healthy. I decided to try something that I’ve seen a few versions of and use it to plan my breakfasts for the week. At first, I thought it was sort of quichey, but without a crust, I think I…

The Great Weight Loss Challenge

I have mentioned in previous posts that I lost a good deal of weight upon moving to Southern California. I was motivated to be a healthier version of myself and it made sense that I would start my path to a new me at the same time as transitioning the rest of my life. It…

The Swearing Mom’s Giveaway!

Hi all! I have been using this cool measuring cup for a while now. I like it so much that I wanted to share one with you. It has four different ways to measure and lots of conversion information. Plus, it just looks really cool! I mean, who doesn’t want to use a beaker in…

Sweet Summer Centerpiece: A table scape too easy not to do!

On my way through the grocery, I saw these vibrant daisies. They were dyed and ridiculously unnatural in color. These were the kinds of cheap flowers that I would have previously mocked. Cosmo said “Get these, mom! They’re cool!”. I chuckled a little and said that they were kind of cheesy, and reached for an…

Going out with a BANG: The Swearing Mom Celebrates Independence Day!

My family is one of tradition. We always celebrated holidays in similar ways and with the same people and it was always important that we were together. The 4th of July was always a good time! Cousins, swimming, barbecue and fireworks! It doesn’t get much better than that for a kid. Having moved, we have…
